The windows are opened at the house, letting in that wonderful air...
The water of the pool glistens in the sunlight....it has a sparkle and shimmer that I miss when winter closes its reign.
We put the umbrella up for shade, as the sun becomes quite strong.
Off to sit at the pool, and take a dip now and then...
Evening comes and the deck is shaded, ready for the cookout dinner.
Its quiet now on top of the mountain.......the sun sets......and that light, breeze slips into the house as we turn on the ceiling fan for just a bit of breeze in the air...
Then tomorrow is another summer day.......and the land blooms again.
My ideal summer day.............
You would love GA or FL or any deep south state!!!

So most people would not enjoy Summering's description of ideal summer weather?

*His description sounded like nice, "mild" summer weather to me...
And I KNOW that most people hate southern summer weather.

Trust me, everywhere in Melbourne and pretty much everywhere along the coast of Australia suffers from nightly dew especially in winter.



Now, why the hell would anyone go to a Victorian beach in winter??? Water temps EVERYWHERE along the coast average below 20C in summer, Moderator cut: Word removed that's bloody cold enough, but WINTER? Moderator cut: Word removed !!!! As a matter of fact, anywhere in Victoria along the extreme coast is cold year round, with climates like Eureka California and coastal Oregon.

Victoria has the coldest beaches in the world for its latitude.
You're most welcome to come on down and check. I'd be surprised if you found it. But again I will say I was referring to the warmer weather.

And I guess I won't invite you to the beach in Winter then?
Best thing about the beach in Winter is you've pretty much got it to yourself AND you don't get sunburnt.

I'm saying Summering would love southern summer weather...

But, you are right. Most southerners I talk to really loathe summertime.

I just want to get this straight;
Most southerners loathe "mild-yet-distinctly-summer" weather?

Most southerners that live in the "Deep South" (LA,MS,AL,GA,SC) really do not like the weather during the summer.........temps at 90+ and humidity over 50%. That's not "mild".

(if the air is also under 32 C.) Some of my fingers have gone numb after spending 1.5 hours underwater in conditions like this; 28 C air, water 26 C. When the air is over 32 C, even while wet I can easily regain lost body heat by staying in the sun.

*I could say the same thing, only "girls" can't work hard all day in the 38 C sunshine.
Up until the other day I wasn't aware of your inner thermostat problems and having them myself but from the opposite temperatures causing the ill effect you most definitely could call me a girl, for not being able to work hard all day in anything over 23c. (and even that's a stretch )

I suggest Queensland for you. I'm staying right here in Victoria.

I'm with you! I'm a wimp when it comes to really hot weather. Though I have ran 3-4 miles with temps in the 40C range (August of '07 in Georgia during baseball conditioning) and that was the worst thing I have ever done....I'm surprised they didn't cancel conditioning that day....I swear I was cookin' and sizzling out there....turning into roast pig..

Warm I like, with a light breeze, even better.

Once it starts getting over 24c what I can do starts to become limited and over 30c forget about practically everything AND when you get to over 40c that's when you'll find me lying stretched out in front of the aircon doing nothing and still feeling icky.

I'll never understand why that level of exertion is requested or participated in on days of high temperature. Doesn't anybody remember that bloke whose muscles were liquified in the heat??????

Muscles liquified in heat???? eek!!!!!
